A Shameless Plug for a Steady-State Economy

Unbridled economic growth is vital to the security of the United States. True or False? Sad to say, the President, Congress, and Wall Street have it all wrong. Unbridled economic growth is actually the greatest threat to the continued stability of the
United States and the world community. A steady-state economy, as visualized by Brian Czech and others of his ilk, is the simple solution.

Anyone who cares at all about wild places and the creatures that inhabit them, or who wants to ensure that future generations will inherit a quality environment in which to live, owes it to themselves to learn all they can about what can be done to bring
about a steady-state economy.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would someday recommend that a person sit down and read a book on economics for pleasure. An oxymoron, surely. But wait, before you dismiss me as a complete kook, take a closer look at Shoveling Fuel for a Runaway Train: Errant Economists, Shameful Spenders, and a Plan to Stop Them All, a new book on economic ecology by Brian Czech.

For previews of the book (including selected excerpts from the text), and reviews written by both professional critics and the general public, check these pages at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You can also find additional information on Brian Czech’s home page. Are you still suspicious about the motives behind corporate globalization and its impact on the natural resources of Planet Earth? Then check out Brian Milani’s Green Economics Website.
